Warm Winter Engagement Photos [Sharon & Richard]

warm winter engagement photos

When Sharon and Richard scheduled their session a few months ago to take place in December, we definitely weren’t expecting such warm winter engagement photos! Indian Battle Park felt like it was going through spring a whole season early with all the bright sunshine and total lack of wind.

Sharon and Richard are such a perfect couple, giggling like lovestruck teenagers every time they look at each other. I loved seeing how comfortable and snuggly they are together!

Coaldale Winter Wedding [Kyle & Annelies]

Annelies & Kyle, Coaldale winter wedding

After standing beside her friend earlier this year, it was now time for Annelies’s Coaldale winter wedding with her love Kyle!

Their ceremony at the Coaldale Canadian Reformed Church was very special in that it was performed by Annelies’s grandfather, and even more so that she is the first of his grandchildren to get married! It added such a personal touch to be able to include their family so intimately.

Most of their details were created by people involved in the wedding, but mostly by Annelies who designed all of the paper items and created the bouquets by hand. She has so much talent and it’s not surprising she is a graphic designer.

We had the perfect winter weather for their wedding. November can be quite unpredictable, but we had a gorgeous mix of snow on the ground and enough sunshine to keep them warm when we went out for photos in Lethbridge. Their wedding party was so fun and energetic and it was great to see a few familiar faces in the lineup.

Annelies and Kyle are such a sweet and romantic couple and they really accented that feel with their styling of blush pink, wine, bow ties, and cardigans.

Congratulations, Kyle and Annelies!

Autumn River Bottom Family Photos [Bobbi & Ryan]

autumn river bottom family photos

I was so excited for Bobbi and Ryan when I learned they added a brand new baby boy, Camden, into their family! Bobbi is really going to have her work cut out for her in a household of four boys once they start getting older ;)

They came down for the Thanksgiving weekend with the cute blonde boys and we meet for autumn river bottom family photos by the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. Luckily the coulees and trees blocked the crazy wind from bothering us too much and the leaves still looked gorgeous down there! Camden is already very loved by his big brothers and I’m sure they will be eager to teach him how to climb on logs once he is big enough.

Indian Battle Park Summer Family Session [Vince & Brenda]

Indian Battle Park summer family session

I met up with Vince and Brenda for their very first Indian Battle Park summer family session, a great way to celebrate the arrival of the (fairly) recent addition to their family! The girls are already such great sisters and it was so adorable to see their smiles every time they sat together (at least until hair was being tugged on).

The Lethbridge coulees were like a lush green jungle when we went there and it couldn’t have looked prettier.

p.s. Sure his smiles on command are great, but I think their Chihuahua is extra cute just because his name is Michael Jackson :)

Lethbridge Grandstand Summer Wedding [Don & Cathy]

Don & Cathy, Lethbridge Grandstand summer wedding

I’ve been looking forward to Don and Cathy’s Lethbridge Grandstand summer wedding for a long time now – not just because they were the first wedding booked for this year, but because I’ve been dancing with Cathy for many years now! Her and Don have been a family for quite a while now and decided to make it official with a party for their closest friends and family.

They held both their ceremony and reception on the bright upper level of the Grandstand. Having Norma officiate the wedding was a perfect fit as she’s one of our “dance moms.”

The hazy skies and summer heat made everything look dreamy and warm outside. It was a perfect complement to the natural color scheme of green, orange, and brown they chose for their wedding colors. They looked gorgeous and were so joyous all day!

Congratulations, Don and Cathy!

Summer River Bottom Family Photos [Lily, Emily & Travis]

summer river bottom family photos

The evening is a perfect time for summer river bottom family photos during a heat wave! Lily came down to Indian Battle Park in Lethbridge with her mom and dad for their family photos and had so much fun exploring the coulees. She loved running through the trails and having her parents pick her up to swing her, but probably her favorite thing of all were fake sneezes. The bigger your fake sneeze, the harder she would laugh! She even got pretty good at faking her own by the end of the session :)
